Uerige DoppelSticke might just be "Germany's interpretation of a barley-wine", ie a third definition next to England's "malt-driven" idea {such as JW Lees Vintage Harvest Ale} and America's "hop-heavy" version {such as Sierra Nevada's BigFoot}. OG - 1085; IBU - 75; Ingredients; Hops:Spalt Spalter, Hallertauer Perle, Spalt Hallertauer; Malts: Pilsner malt, caramel malt, roasted malt

Okay, so rarely can I claim that a beer in the 89th percentile is underrated, but this certainly is. To me, this beer is one of, if not the best beers I’ve ever had. Not too rich, just full of caramel and greatness. Next time I find it I’m going to buy it all, just like the guy in front of me was doing, until I begged two bottles off of him. He was a smart man.

Enjoyed a sample of this beer at Tasting in the Woods, Part Deux. Altbier is one of my all time favorite beer styles, and Uerige has set the bar very high when it comes to alt, and its bigger, brawnier, brother, sticke. Leave to Uerige to go even higher with the first ever "doppel sticke" which is an even bigger version of sticke. This beer pours to a beautiful, bright, deep copper color, with a thick, creamy, white head, and a moderate carbonation. The nose on this beer is fantastic, with lots of big, pungent, spicy/herbal hop aromas, and some toasty nutty malt aroma. The palate is slick on the tongue, with really great, toasty/nutty malt, paired with some nice fruity notes, on a smooth, and clean body. Doppel Sticke finishes with those great malt flavors up front, then ends with a zesty herbal burst of hop bitterness that lingers. A super charged up version of altbier, I loved this one. Like with altbier, and regular sticke, Uerige has brewed up another bench mark example of a beer style. World class beer.

I will be goddamned. Pours very dark beautiful ruby with a thick khaki dome that settles slowly and leaves some waves of foamy lace. Nose involves deep malty sweetness, brown sugar, dark fruit, vinous beauty, some light earthy and spicy hops, caramelized sugar, port wine, toasted malt, alky vapes. Excellently sweet, bitter enough to offer an attempt at balance. Full bodied, quite oily, viscous, rich, softer carb, with a drying toasty voluptuous finish. A bit oxidized? Maybe. A bit chunky? Sure. Best beer I’ve ever fucking had? You bet your honky ass.

It had just the right amount of malt flavor and aroma. It has more alcohol than I normally like for a "nooner", but hey, it was a Friday. It was difficult to fight the urge for another one.

UPDATED: AUG 16, 2014 Fantastica birra, una piacevole casuale scoperta in un pub. L’aroma è caldo e avvolgente, con chiare note affumicate, maltate e di frutta secca, e in bocca presenta proprio queste caratteristiche, ben abbinate tra loro. Un bel retrogusto amarognolo che invita ad una nuova bevuta. Corpo decisamente strutturato. Una delle migliori birre che ho mai assaggiato.

clear dark brown under a large creamy beige head. big potent raisin, plum, cocoa, dog food, nutty, toffee aroma. flavor is loaded with sweet sticky fruits(fresh squeezed purple grapes, plum, raisins, berries) tons of dark malts(chocolate, caramel). amazing balance with some mild bittering hops in finish but this beer is clearly malt mania. quite perfect actually. full bodied. a real meal.

Shaney (2423) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - MAR 9, 2013
Dunkelbraun, fast schwarz, leicht trüb, kleine Schaumcrema. Wunderbare Aromenvielfalt: Portweinartig fruchtig und schwer, eingelegte Rosinen, Pflaume, Hefe, Tabak, Sandelholz. Sirupartige Textur. Startet fulminant herb, geht dann über in eine Würze nach Röst- und Karamellmalz mit Zartbitter. Hohe Aromendichte, sehr komplexer Nektar, der noch ein paar Ecken und Kanten aufweist, die bei längerer Lagerung wohl runder werden dürften. Ein Juwel deutscher Braukunst, ganz großes Kino.

First sampled in Philly, I had hoped to drink this in its native environment at the Uerige keller in Düsseldorf. Maybe on my next trip. Just as glorious as expected, dark and caramelly, slightly sweet with a hint at the alcohol.. This one is a treat all the way around. "old beer" my ass, this is just as relevant today. Try one if you have the chance, this is what altbier is all about.

Very complex flavors for a double bock. Starts off with a sweet taste followed by a chewiness and dry feel. You know its strong without tasting the alcoho until the endl.
